Grognard: Ruminations On 40 Years In Gaming
By Loren Wiseman

I hope you will join me in thinking that Loren would be proud of this book, of his work in it, and of the contents.

Loren was truly a grognard, and in keeping with that status, he from time to time grumbled that his reputation was eclipsed by other more high profile designers in the gaming industry. This book helps us remember that he started gaming in 1973, that he edited the Journal of the Traveller's Aid Society for more then 40 years, and - in addition to that - designed more than 32 titles, and co-designed 42 other titles. He was specifically credited in the design of the role-playing classics: Traveller, Twilight: 2000, Space: 1889, and GURPS Traveller.

This volume serves as a memorial to him and his work in the hobby and industry that he loved.
